Ferulic acid standard solution at different concentrations of 5, 500 and 3,000 ng/ml in rat plasma was prepared. After storage for 30 days at -20°C, the samples were injected into UPLC-MS/MS to determine the stability of ferulic acid. Mean of the concentration (ng/ml) of ferulic acid in rat plasma, SD, RSD (%) and RE (%) was calculated, n = 3.
